(40 hour/5 day Course)

This level I/II course satisfies the syllabus requirements of ASNT-CP-189, SNT-TC-1A, NAS 410, BS EN 4179 and PCN. It is suitable for engineering inspectors at all levels of experience who require formal training and a qualification in this subject.

The training programme covers 50% theory and 50% practical application allowing the student time to obtain a good foundation in this method of NDT by practicing a large variety of inspection techniques under the supervision of qualified instructors using the latest equipment.

The course comprises:
Advantages and limitations.
Principles of operation.
Surface preparation.
Safety precautions.
Descriptions of materials.
Principles of magnetism.
Flux leakage fields.
Basic principles of electricity.
Description of waveforms.
Magnetic hysteresis.
Magnetisation methods and their sequence of operation.
Type of magnetising equipment.
Detection media.
Flux and field indicators.
Interpretation and recording of indications.
Demagnetisation and equipment control checks.
Preparation of technique and report writing procedures with emphasis on relevant specification interpretation.

All students are continuously assessed during the course by homework and progress tests together with a theoretical and practical end of course examination.

At the end of the course the students can also take approval examinations in Magnetic Particle Inspection at Level I, II or Level III to SNT-TC-1A, NAS 410 or BS EN 4179 in accordance with their company written practice.

International School of Aerospace NDT also acts as an outside agency providing Level III services as defined in the aforementioned documents.
